The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Oh, well, I accidentally left one of the gas stove burners on late this morning. Went up to the 3rd floor to work and didn't discover it till after 5:00 PM . . .

Airing out the house now, and trying to keep the animals upstairs till it's done.

Call the gas company? What the hell are they going to do?

(Oh, yeah. I tagged/blog-awarded you at Doncha feel special?)

I'm guessing smoking a cigarette to relieve the stress is out of the question?

And, thank you!
